FINE DETAILS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. . .
As we go through the aging process, all of us develop "dynamic" wrinkles naturally that are caused by repetitive movements. Each frown and smile causes facial lines, and that eventually starts to linger even once the expression has faded. BOTOX Cosmetic is very popular since it provides a very affordable, simple, and quick way to get rid of wrinkles around the brows and eyes. Our dental spa practice has experienced professionals who use BOTOX injections for smoothing away the lines. BOTOX is considered to be an excellent nonsurgical rejuvenation treatment for refreshing the face of the patient with no or little downtime involved.
Treatment For Crow Feet, Frown Lines, & Forehead Lines
Minimal Pain & Discomfort
BOTOX Cosmetic is comprised of Onabotulinumtoxin A, which is a substance that the FDA first approved in 2002 for treating glabellar lines - which are the vertical frown lines that are in between the brows. BOTOX Cosmetic, since its approval, has risen steadily to become the most popular form of non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the United States. It blocks nerve impulses going into the muscles that cause wrinkles whenever you make an expression. Rather than forming and flexing wrinkles, the skin and muscles remain relaxed. This effective, safe product is used by our on-sit MedSpa team to treat crow's feet, brow creases, and frown lines, in addition to laugh lines surrounding the mouth.
How To Administer BOTOX
Small BOTOX doses are injected into the skin wherever there are noticeable wrinkles. Usually it is done at a doctor's office and it can take 15 to 30 minutes to complete the procedure. The dose amounts and number of injections administered will vary by the patient depending on how severe the wrinkles are. First patients are marked with ink before the injection so the practitioner can inject the areas accurately that need wrinkle softening. The procedures doesn't create any discomfort except for a normal prick that uses a small needle. To help to reduce discomfort even further, a numbing cream can be applied. Patients can go home directly after receiving treatment without any downtime from their regular routine.
What You Can Expect
Following treatment, mild bruising and swelling might appear on the site of the injection. It is advised that patient limited exercise and sleep in the upright position on the same night that they have their treatment. The swelling and redness only lasts for a couple of hours. However, some patients might experience bruising for a few days. Patients can take a bruising medication like Arnica for the week before their treatment to help minimize their bruising. It will take around 5 to 7 days for BOTOX treatment results to appear. Once they do, your face will look brighter and smoother, and the fresh appearance will make you feel rejuvenated.
